First of all, not money issues :) Just priorities!
You'll never believe this! Want to know why he was all pi$$y faced? Because I spent $50 Gift card on my tank and new betta!! He said we can't afford a cruise but we can get a new pet? He told ME that money should have went on his wedding cruise!! I should have bought my dog food from the store with the gift card, and used the $50 in my pocket for the cruise. Can you believe that?
He also went on to say if I didn't have so many animals, I could afford a cruise. He told ME in MY HOME that enough's enough and I have more than anyone needs!! Can you imagine someone saying that to you?! I have a dog, a cat and a lizard that I have had for 8 years. Other than then I have 5 pet rats that were not adoptable by others (so they live their lives with an experienced owner, me) and I have a 29gal tank and now Ben.
He went on with his usual they have bills too, but throughout the convo I heard that they bought a new bed, went on 2 trips, he's going to a metallica concert next month and he has to buy the new star wars game coming out, which will cost him about $20 a month to play. They have two new rigs, one was just redone for $300, the other is going in to be serviced. He's paying for his mother to be in another province while her niece is dying, he's sent over over $400 so far. So if they were so bad off, where's all this extra money coming from? I told HIM if HE didn't pay for all these things over the last 2 months... he'd have his wedding payed for! AH HA!
Anyways, we have agreed to take a flight to Florida and stand in the wedding and go right back home. No cruise for us. And yes, he lied to his fiance!
When he was here last week trying to talk us back into it, we kept telling him we can't do it, not going to happen. I guess when I walked away, he told my fiance to call him with the final say. My fiance didn't call him, I didn't know he was supposed to (MEN!) and I canceled the trip. That's why his fiance didn't know, he was expecting us to say yes, when I made it pretty clear it was a NO when he was here. No phone call was needed, he had our answer as far as I'm concerned. My fiance has no back bone when it comes to other people though. gah!!
Anyways... after this, it's either his friend or me and the kids. I am not having THAT in my life.
